A regular at psychic fairs throughout Texas, Elka specializes in the ancient form of divination known as the runes. For nearly two millennia, the runes have been used for prophecy, healing and magic throughout Northern Europe.
Studying with both scholars and shamans, she has extensively researched the runes’ strong association with dreams and trance states. She is a solitary practitioner of sie∂r, the shamanistic magical system of the Norse and Germanic heathens.
In addition to public appearances and lectures, Elka gives private rune readings, teaches classes, conducts workshops, and writes articles about runecraft and Nordic lore. She is a legally ordained minister and spiritual advisor. Also a ceramic artist, Elka makes rune sets and creates ceremonial and art objects, such as spirit rattles.
